Bethesda has released a few new screenshots for their highly anticipated title Fallout 3.
Road Warrior,what's Mad Max doing in there? The game looks great.
This will be my first fallout title, but it is already looking like a must buy
That's exactly the first thing I thought when I saw that screenshot.
Master Blaster runs Bartertown!
and people where saying it to be looking like trash and still many compare it to lamest of Jrpg's. I mean if you compare this to FF than its fair but if you say that Eternal Sonata is better than thats fanboyism for sure. But the comparison doesnt ends here ES is atlest decent Fallout is being compared to JRPG's which get review like 6 or 5 and its said that it nothing in front of them.
In EGM. I like how the PSU watermark is not completely covering the PCGames.de watermark. haha.
This is the first time ive not known anything about a game, and am still really hyped for it. Never played the first Fallouts, and i barely know anything about this one. But, thanks to MK Red, Im really exited for this game.
Glad to hear :)
Looks like a re-skinned Oblivion. Not impressed. Also, I hate the lack of a dynamic lighting engine. Nothing casts dynamic shadows in Bethesda's games except characters. And even so, your character's shadow only shows in 3rd person, not in 1st person. Bethesda's got the gameplay and technique nailed down, but not the graphics aspect at ALL. I'm not even remotely interested in Fallout, until they can make an engine that creates better atmosphere. And that means dynamic lighting and shadows. S.T.A.L.K.E.R. did it, so can Fallout. They're similar, and since I've played S.T.A.L.K.E.R., I'm expecting more from other apocalyptic-type games. It's extremely important to make objects in the world look GROUNDED in reality...not just lifeless set-pieces with no real relevance.
But for some reason you are all hyped for MGS4.....Go figure
Your point? You must be a 360 fanboy.
Gamers are so insanely nonsensically anal about video game development now it's just gotten way out of hand. Wow *shakes head and leaves thread*
Your right. And you know what? We should halt the advancement in virtual realism altogether, yeah. Maybe in ten years, we'll still have oblivion-like graphics. That Crysis is a Joke! /sarcasm Critiquing videogames is what makes them better. Maybe your not 'anal' enough.
You're getting agree's because Sony fanboys can't stand when Multi platform game ourperform PS3 exclusives.
Look at this poop, the same people that are agreeing with you no doubt think this poop is the pinnacle of visuals.
Isn't this the PC version and anothing thing the game isn't finished, if it stays like this its going to be because of the PS3 its a classic PS3 quality; 360 games easily solves the issues you speak of but if the PS3 can't pull it off the devs will hani-capp the game, well atleast the 360 version not the PC version.
I do agree that as of now this game is no Splinte Cell Conviction when it comes to advanced lighting engines etc.
@ POG.... whoa, whoa, whoa.....did you just say MGS4 graphics are poop? in denial? a hater?.....jealousy, i guess. it's ok. guess you gotta deal with it then.
It's ok, we all know POG has tourette's syndrome. This was just another one of his outbursts, similar to other outbursts such as: "SCROTUM LICKER!!" "FART BOTTLER!" and such. Oh, and for the record, turd-head # 2 (POG), MGS 4 is not the pinnacle of graphics. Check this out POG....I bet you won't see THIS grace the 360 anytime soon, or ever, for that matter: EDIT* And one last thing: Anyone who spells "handicap" with no 'd' , a hyphen, and a double 'p' is a f|cking retard.
These are old ass grabs the game will be light years better when MSFT shows it soon.
I'v seen video of the lighting engine working, its as advanced as Alan Wake's.
I am going to say this once and once only: Not one console game on the PLANET, in creation, or created already, has a lighting engine as advanced as Killzone 2. You are one stupid individual, POG. You keep having tourettes outbursts, and it's starting to annoy me. Wear a freaking muzzle if you can't control your outbursts of stupidity. POG, if you think that QUAD-CORE, 4GB RAM PC DX10 ALAN WAKE TECH DEMO is EVER going to look or run that good on the 360, then you're delusional, little boy.
like CoD4 outperforming MS's overhyped top franchise game Halo 3?
Could Possibly Be GOTY......
if it was PS3 exclusive you prolly wouldn't be saying that:)
Could be, now I am trying to figure out if I want to get it on release day or wait and see if there are going to be any expansion packs that could make it a goty edition.
His comment had nothing to do with PS3 or 360, you are the one who mentioned it, not him. Which mean you must have a personal problem with him. All he said was looks to be GOTY, your the one who jumped to the D and mentioned PS3, which shows me what you realy are.
@jason 360..... how about letting Utalkin2me fight his own battles.... if you have seen his previous posts you would understand why he is getting called out...... besides, you have absolutely no room to talk...some of us can remember the time's YOU spewed garbage out of your mouth....... and for the record...we already know what you really are
Yeah thats why there is a "360" at the end of my name. What part of 360 did you not get, the 3, the 6 or the 0? I have no shame of what I am, your barking up the wrong fanboy, I wave my flag high.
Still doesnt change the fact though, show me anywhere where his comment had anything to do with "any" console. Now show me which person mentioned it first.
Have a nice day bro, next time try that with a fanboy who is ashamed of being a fanboy, you calling me a 360 fanboy is a complement :)
Nice one jason. Hey, i hv 360 at the end of my tag as well. Small world.
@erics how about u letting them both fight there own battles.
There is nothing wrong with helping call out someone that is trying to start a platform war as long as the person isn't degraded (i.e. insulted or attacked). This game does have potential for GOTY and it doesn't matter what platform it's coming to just the quality of it's content. There is no reason to bring up what console it's for unless your trying to figure out what console it's for in regards to a purchase or for it's smaller details, as in achievements or future Home potential.
I really can't wait for this game, just hope they stay true to the series and the manuals, without a doubt the fallout manuals where one of the best around. Now if only some one would make another Crusader: No remorse/regret.
@chubear: I'm not nonsensically anal... You're just not anal ENOUGH. Ha!
Oh, and who said I was all hyped for MGS4? I've never really liked MGS, but I might give this one a try, because of the addition of a 1st-person move / shoot option.
never played fallout before but it looks really good that last pic gave me chills lol
Need to know more about this game, same as with Wardevil...
"game of the year" well its looking good
looks damn good.must buy 4 me.
Just an FYI: These screenshots are from PCGH and were taken from the PC version running in DX10. (Although the screens, for some reason, weren't taken at max settings--look at the lack of AF). http://www.pcgameshardware....
CHECK THIS OUT!!!
EDIT: Sigh...where's my picture?
This game is going to rape so hard, on 360. I can't wait. I just hope Bethesda hired animators this time.
No it not...It will explode the x360, that's for sure!!! Ahahahahah!!!!
so this game is like a shooter with rpg elements?
Yes, sadly, considering Fallout 1 and 2 were straight up CRPGs.
Hey Bob, why exectely does a game stop beying an CRPG just because it has shooter elements? Turn based combat does not mean RPG, you know?
...you've missed a great series of games ;-) ----------------------------- - First, let me tell you this : Fallout 1 and 2 were never, ever about the graphics. The graphics were only good enough to do the job. That being said, Fallout 2 (I never finished 1) was awesome. There was so much depth to the game that it was amazing how you could play through the game. It was also filled with a whole crapload of humor, something a lot of games lack these days. ----------------------------- ----- Fallout 3 looks to be taking the same gameplay elements of 1 and 2 and just melding them into 3-D space. Though I'm not positive, I believe you can play the game (turned base) just like 1 or 2, or you can play "real time", which would probably be a KOTOR-like fight, with variables, etc. calculated in the background. IF...IF Bethesda gets this right, it'll be an awesome game. Fallout 2 was and is still an awesome game, and if you can find an old copy I'd suggest anyone play through it -- It's old enough to run on just about any PC operational today ;)
According to what I read, turn-based combat requires some sort of 'points' system. Once you lose your points, you are forced to revert back to real-time combat until you regain your turn-based action points, which I think is done through combat.
@cputeq: sadly you couldn't be more wrong, our Bethesda "pals" yet again have exchanged pretty much EVERYTHING of the original Fallout gameplay for their classic mainstream simplicity and easy satisfaction/gain type of gameplay
sadly there is no more turn based combat now its a basic 1st/3rd person shooter mechanics and the whole turn based points effect system has been replaced with twitch gameplay as they did with Oblivion
as far as we know the skill and perks system is COMPLETELY pointless cuz everyone that has played the original knows both skill and perks directly affected stuff related to the points for the turnbased actions and it was crucial to understand how to managed the points for combat and stay alive now that the combat is simple aim and click (why go thru all the hard work for the Sniper perk when you can just aim at the head and click!) both Skills and perks will probably be redesigned by Bethesda to be some kind of gimmick, did I mentioned that Bethesda as usual eliminated some Skill and Perks? but any one familiar with their games would remember how on each Elder Scroll sequel they seem to cut out more stuff than the one they add
but don't worry in some kind of bizarre attempt to pretend to keep the original gameplay there is the VATS system that is a very poor attempt to make you think turn based actions and point still matter...by pausing the game to allow you to target and see your kills in slow motion! YAY!
but all be in the name of attraction a more mainstream $ audience $ that would probably find all the deep and complex combat and gamplay in the original Fallouts WAY to complicated and that is a BIG NO NO in the Bethesda mentality
ANYONE that ever had the curiosity to know what the Fallout games are all about and why are they considered so legendary and are featured in many "greatest games" should just go and buy the Fallout Collection that features the first 3 games ($15)...cuz Fallout 3 is not where to start and not even remotely reflects why Fallout became so legendary...which is pretty sad
Bethesda isnt THAT bad. You make them sound like EA. YES we're all going to miss the old Fallout, but Bethesda is the best pair of hands Interplay could have given the license to (beside maybe Bioware).
I can tell you didn't like Oblivion, but myself, along with many other wrpg fans did. Yes, it oversimplified gameplay, what can you do ? What would you rather, a game like Oblivion, or a game like the ps2 Brotherhood of Steel ? THAT was a bad game.
I am Legend meets Mad Max.
if this game is a shooter/rpg more in the vein of mass effect than oblivion, then sign me up. call me crazy, but i wasn't too fond of oblivion.
Looks boring, zombies? god cant we move on zzz
There is just not zombies and zombies. Its just a part of a huge ocean.
They are not zombies, they are supposed to be ghouls. But since the good people at Bethesda never played the original Fallout games, they don't know what a ghoul looks like, so they just imported the zombie models from Oblivion. Along with the crappy dialogue system and other flawed gameplay elements.
Caliber, good to know that you already played the game. Why not write a review?
The screens look amazing!
Can't wait for this to come out. I've never played a Fallout game (never had a comp as a kid in the house) so i missed out. But the storyline and some of the announced perks sound cool. Though i preferred one of the perks that didn't win in their fan contest (the one where a random object falls out of the sky onto the opponents head when you're dieing). I hope it has some deep gameplay.
and honestly dont have a clue what to expexct.
What is this game exactly ? a FPS or an RPG ?
and what so great about the series because I really dont see anything incredible.
I started to play Fallout 1 and 2 again. I find it now even better than few years ago. So many possibilities (compared to present games). F1 was generally shorter and somehow darker. If you haven´t played them and you do not want- just check some walkthrough to make a brief picture about the gameplay of original fallout. (Per Jorner´s walkthrough is imo the best).
It is looking good, Fallout 2 was fantastic so i can't wait for Fallout 3. Fall 08 is going to be good!
but sometimes, a guy just has to move on :)
I've strange feeling ...... Devs,please, don't make from it another Oblivion.
I do enjoy posts about multi-platform games compared to exclusive games. There aren't people spaming away about how an exclusive looks bad compared to something else exclusive to the system that they own. I really don't see how they can go wrong with Fallout 3. The game looks great.
